Pittsburgh Special Olympics Polar Plunge 2012

November 25, 2012 0 By ScottyB

The 3rd Annual Pittsburgh Special Olympics Polar Plunge will take place this Sunday December 2nd, on the North Shore near Heinz Field. Registration will begin at 9 a.m., but the actual plunging won’t start till around 1 p.m. 

This year, the 2012 Pittsburgh Special Olympics Polar Plunge is expected to exceed last year’s 2,500 spectators, of which a little over 1,200 yinzers took the dip for this great cause and to support these special athletes. Presented by the men and women of law enforcement in Pittsburgh and surrounding communities, the 2012 Polar Plunge is hoping to surpass the $300,000 dollars raised from last year, and they need your help.

To take the arctic plunge into the 34 degree Allegheny River, a minimum donation of $50.00 is required. If you want to donate more, you are definitely encouraged to. Spectators are never charged, but every little bit helps. Donations of any dominations will be excepted throughout the event, so dig deep in those couch cushions for every penny you cheap bastards.

There will be plenty to do on Sunday, December the 2nd on the North Shore. Pittsburgh Steeler Hall of Fame Wide Receiver #83 Louis Lipps will be on hand as the honorary Plunge Master of Ceremonies. My favorite, you can never go wrong with free food, live music, and plenty of games for the kids.

Worried about safety? The Pittsburgh Police, Fire, and Paramedic River Rescue and Divers will be on hand to handle any unforeseen emergencies on land or in the water. Rest assure, it will be a great event to benefit the athletes of the Special Olympics of Western Pennsylvania.
